A series of N-[4-cyano-2-fluoro-5-(2-pyrimidinyloxy, 2-benzyloxy or 2-pyridinyloxy)phenyl]-3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalimides was synthesized, and the herbicidal activities of those deivatives were evaluated through pre- and post-emergence application under upland conditions in a greenhouse. The results showed that most compounds resulted in stronger herbicidal activity on broadleaf weeds than on grass weeds and higher through post-emergence than pre-emergence application. The N-[(4-cyano-2-fluoro-5-(2-pyrimidinyloxy) phenyl]-3,4,5,6-tetrahydrophthalimide showed the best weed control efficacy and marginal corn safety at a rate of 60 g/ha through pre-emergence application.
